Late last year, Dutch skate shop BenG released a Nike SB Blazer High collaboration that contrasted its white tumbled leather uppers with a black corduroy Swoosh. This super-simple, super-clean combo was paired with yellow heel embroidery and blue laces for one of the more refreshing takes on the subdued theme that’s been so common of late. But apparently, Ben G wasn’t always headed in that direction, as we see here from a scrapped sample that’s popped up in an online auction. These go with black heel embroidery and while that might seem to indicate an even subtler colorway, an all-orange vulcanized sole is added to ensure that never happens. We feel safe in saying the right choice was made for retail, but if you wanna get your hands on a piece of history, check out the US mens size 9 sample available from cheapskates9107 on eBay.
